"SGI does not have priests" or "We are all priests in the SGI"?

"SGI does not have priests" -- FAQ Soka Gakkai International

"At the present time, the Soka Gakkai itself is the one and only group of united priests which receives and inherits the 'lifeblood of faith.'" (Seikyo Shinbun, 9/18/93)

"Lay believers who, among all the people in the world, embrace, believe in and practice the True Law...can also be said to be the treasure of the priest" -- Speech by Soka Gakkai Daisaku Ikeda World Tribune, Sept. 30, 1991

I guess there are unpaid, paid, and highly paid (Japanese) priests in SGI.
